Home again home again jiggity jig

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

It’s difficult to sum up a holiday with one photo, but while I unpack and do laundry and buy milk and go to two (!) meetings and a possible video shoot (!!) and start sorting through 1000 photos and also answering the 400 emails that await in my inbox… this is going to have to do:


More coming soon, but in the meantime I’d like to thank my lovely guest posters:

Thank you ladies, for holding down the fort!

Love that saying, jigity jig! My husband says it all the time, his father used to say it. It’s not a tradition when we return home!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
